Job Tickets Preview


Posted: 31 Jan 2008 06:46 am


Hi Hal, using the program more and more. Now we are trying to go paperless in the work area as far as job tickets are concerned and I wondered if they can be displayed full screen or can you amend so they can. Also, what is the latest version now as I want to keep up to date.

Is there also a way to display the order progress/tracking in a more pictorial manner as we have one member of staff who is finding it difficult to understand this part of the system due to the lack of IT skills and is also nervous about messing the scheduling up.

Hi Clive,

Going paperless in the work area? You're a brave man! Just keep in mind the old saw about how to single out the pioneers in a crowd: They're the ones with the arrows in their back. I'm assuming you're familiar with the print preview function (Print > Job Ticket from the main menu, then click the camera button). Are you looking for something beyond that?

The job tracking display will get fancier in time, but will have to wait until we change to the .NET platform, where we will have the full range of the MS Visual Studio class libraries available to us.

Hi Hal, that's great news for the future. With regards to the print preview, that is what we are using but I wonder if it can be expanded to fill the screen. There is no button top right to expand it to full screen as there is on the main program screens, it's so we can get a better view. I hope we manage to dodge the arrows but we are running the paper system side by side till April to iron out the hitches. We use your printed job sheets already so hopefully the move will not be too painful.

Clive, I suspect adding a maximize button to the preview screen would involve major surgery but I'll have a look.
